Distribution Lists

Last modified 2/14/2022

Distribution List is an address associated with one or more members. It is not an email account; it does not have its own user name or password. Instead, email sent to a Distribution List is delivered to the members of the list. Departments and other groups will often create email Distribution Lists so they have public email addresses for their organizations. For example, Reggie Redbird belongs to an organization called “Illinois State Athletics” and belongs to the Distribution List. As an employee of the University, or as a member of a campus organization, you may be an owner or member of one or more email Distribution Lists.

Who Can Access?

Distribution lists are available to campus departments and other groups.
